MJQ Déjà vu is comprised of Pat Kelly, the original house pianist of the Blue Wisp Jazz Club and keyboardist for the Psychoacoustic Orchestra; nationally recognized vibraphonist Rusty Burge; Marc Wolfey, jazz drummer for the Cincinnati Pops and bassist Jim Anderson.

Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children ages 3-12. Museum members pay for one admission and get the second one free. Adult beverages are available for purchase. Concert-goers can also purchase food by Colonial Cottage of Erlanger, KY, supporting local community organizations. Parking is free.

The series continues on June 7 with the Comet Bluegrass All-Stars and will take place each Thursday night through August 10, with the exception of July 5.

Coming Soon! The Great Outdoors
June 10- Oct. 1
Our newest exhibit is a salute to all of those exhilarating activities that we enjoy outside the confines of our homes, schools and offices. Whether we're strolling through the park or running a marathon, paddling a canoe or deep-sea fishing, outdoor activities clear our minds and provide a relaxing escape from day-to-day routines.

The exhibit features a look back at outdoor activities of the past, with entries from William Behringer's journals from the early 1800s and a display of antique Scout uniforms, and shows how our favorite outdoor activities have changed -- and stayed the same -- over time.
Tom Bluemlein
American Impressionist
